Humberto Gonzalez Rodriguez, Ratikanta Maiti, N. C. Sarkar
2014 International Journal of Bio-resource and Stress Management  
Climate has positive impact on the timing of phenology; cold-air drainage may influence the start of leaf growth, however leaf phenology in tropical evergreen forests is not determined by the seasonality  ...  Use of satellite-derived metrics, such as VARI, may be used for evaluating the spatial patterns and temporal dynamics of species composition across broad geographic regions.  ...  Saitoh et al. (2012) assessed the use of camera-based indices for characterizing canopy phenology in relation to gross primary production in a deciduous broad-leaved and an evergreen coniferous forest  ...

The use of repeat colour digital photography to monitor high Arctic tundra vegetation

Alison Leslie Beamish
2013
Results suggest that colour photographs can be used as a proxy for productivity and aboveground biomass in multiple tundra vegetation communities.  ...  These data were then used to infer phenological signals at multiple spatial scales from a set of colour photographs taken on six days during the 2012 growing season.  ...  Although rG can be used to track phenological and productivity changes in vegetation, Eq. (2), provides a more sensitive indicator of changes in plant pigment (Ide and Oguma 2010) .  ...
